Oct. 26, 2001 (Lexington, Ky.) -- Steven W. Gilbert, president of the Teaching, Learning and Technology (TLT) Group will lead an all-day session on Monday, Nov. 5, for UK faculty, staff and administrators interested in the use of information technology to support instruction. The University of Kentucky provost, the senior vice president and chancellor for the UK Chandler Medical Center, and the vice president for fiscal affairs and information technology are co-sponsoring the program.

Gilbert will speak at 8:30 a.m. in the William T. Young Library auditorium on applying the concepts of a virtual Teaching, Learning and Technology Center (vTLTC).

At 10 a.m., Gilbert will lead a discussion on the scope of support faculty would like, what they are currently receiving, and what needs to be improved. The afternoon session opens at 1:45 p.m. in the Verizon Solutions Center at the James F. Hardymon Building with a group meeting of campus instructional technology support providers.

Discussion will focus on resources required by support providers, (e.g., people, hardware, software and budget), to improve instructional technology support.

Prior to founding the TLT, Gilbert served as vice president of EDUCOM where he created the Educational Uses of Information Technology program and EDUCOM Software Initiative involving 3,000+ campus and corporate volunteer officials.
